SIMULATION AND MODELING FOR DESIGN OPTIMIZATION
NOVO maintains an inventory of simulation and modeling software for stress, fluid flow, dynamics, mathematical models, heat transfer, and electrical circuits. Predictive modeling, or model-based design, is a design optimization method used to compare candidate designs. Where appropriate, simulations can be calibrated with actual experiments.
NOVO’s in-house rapid prototyping and CNC machining allow us to use predictive design methods and “fast-failure” approaches in a complementary way. FEA tools, coupled with good old-fashioned engineering judgment can be significant accelerants to the product development process. And when conventional simulation tools are not suitable, NOVO’s systems engineering group has the analytical skills and software (e.g., Matlab, Simulink) to create a custom analysis for specialized engineering problems.
